Fire Alarm

In the case of a fire alarm, the MTCC operates a two-phase alarm system:

Stage 1: Slow beeping sound, alert signal
  • Remain calm
  • If the alarm is beeping slowly, this is a warning
  • Do not evacuate the building at this stage
  • Await instructions to be announced over the intercom (this will take approximately one minute) or speak to Security Staff
Stage 2: Fast beeping sound, evacuate signal
  • Only evacuate the building if instructed to do so over the intercom or by Security Staff
  • Leave the building via the closest emergency stairwell
  • Fire exits (stairs) are indicated on the floor plans that can be found here
  • Do not use elevators or escalators
  • If you encounter smoke in the stairway, use an alternate exit
  • Once outside, stay clear of the building to permit emergency access
  • Do not attempt to remove vehicles from parking garages or loading docks
  • Do not return until declared safe by the Fire Official

In the event of a medical emergency: 

  • Dial 8160 on any MTCC house phone
